Meet Your New Director!

imgp7961-2.jpg
Jennie Weisner officially started as the  Recreation Director in Canning in early November, just a few short weeks ago. She has strong ties to the Canning & District area as she attended both Glooscap and is a NKEC graduate, always being involved in her school and community through athletics and extra-curricular activities. She was the Recreation Intern in Canning during a co-op term while completing her degree in Kinesiology from Memorial University and later gained further recreation and programming experience as the Recreation Intern & Special Events Coordinator for New Minas Recreation. She has a strong sense of community and pride here and has every intention to devote her time and energy into re-energizing the recreation scene with the help and support of community members and local facilities. Jennie is always open to conversation and ideas about what activities and events you want to see here! She is also looking to support current programming and initiatives!

Shared Strategy for Advancing Recreation in Nova Scotia


Recreation Nova Scotia and the Department of Communities, Culture, & Heritage have come together to create a Shared Strategty for Advancing Recreation in Nova Scotia! The Shared Strategy defines Recreation as, "The experience that results from freely-chosen participation in phsyical, social, intellectual, creative and spiritual pursuits that enhance individual and community wellbeing." Here at Canning Recreation, we are going to work hard to follow the goals within the Shared Strategy in an effort to promote the overall vision for Recreation in Canada, as outlined in the national framework: 

"A Canada in which everyone is engaged in meaningful, accessible recreation experiences that foster: 

        Individual wellbeing: Inidividuals with optimal mental and physical wellbeing, who           are engaged and contributing members of their famililites and communities
        Community wellbeing: Communities that are healthy, inclusive, welcoming, resilient           and sustainable
        The wellbeing of places and spaces: Natual and built environments that are                           appreciated, nurtured, and sustained"
